Bridges was established in 2005 & it's founders have acted as a spiritual catalyst for peace for over 20 years. Our strategy works, whether searching for peace & healing within ourselves, our community or our country, This relational & Messiah-centric strategy encourages transformation in the way people see themselves and each other. Bridges has, through trial and error, established a "strategy" for successful conflict resolution.
We have tested this strategy around the world in a variety of conflicts. We are now committed to sharing what we have learned with you, equipping average people, practitioners in the field and most importantly, empowering what God is already doing to inspire reconciliation in our broken world.
Linguistic discoveries in the Holy Books of the Abrahamic faiths catalyze the entire process, overcoming harmful and often distorted religious understandings. Jesus’ teachings on love and compassion further open the door to the human heart, allowing the Spirit to perform the ultimate, ongoing transformation of thinking and behavior in every one of us.
Studying the Semitic languages of Scripture reveals revolutionary common ground on even the most controversial issues often at the heart of the growing conflict between Muslims, Christians & Jews. This common ground serves as a catalyst for the transformation of paradigms (even radicalized ones).

In Scripture, the word used MOST frequently for "convert" is rooted in the word "Shalom"
We encourage people from ALL backgrounds to "Turn" to the one God, creator of all things.
Awakenings are already happening around the world. Often as a result from the sense of frustration felt with the status quo of corrupt government, financial & religious institutions.
Our HOPE is in a Spiritual Awakening. God is already working in wonderful ways all over the world!
We see this awakening as an organic movement of people from all backgrounds & cultures:
